Life Is a Gift

Life Is a Gift


Life is the gift of love divine

Truth is the means to see                        

God’s the glory, Jesus is mine

Heaven’s the victory


Wonderful is the quiet voice

The moment of the dawn

When Christ becomes our fervent choice

When souls become reborn


What miracles does life await? 

What blessings lie ahead?

Living this side of Heaven’s gate

Serving life’s Living Bread


Sitting content at Jesus’ feet

Life’s resolution made

Watching the ancient foe retreat

Seeing the darkness fade 


Thank God we learn to understand

Thank God for Heaven’s flow

Power to lend a helping hand

To help a soul to glow


Thank God for gifts of faith for hope 

For Jesus selfless love

For willingness for strength to cope

For grace to rise above


For treasures as these God we praise

We glorify our King

Setting one’s sinful heart ablaze

Life’s victory song to sing


Knowing He died for you and me

That He and we be one

How wonderful our God must be

How selfless Christ His Son.....

About the Poet
I never wrote a word of poetry in my life. Till the day Jesus took my hand and touched my soul.....I invite your response. However most poems are not about me! Very few are. But the feed-back good, bad or indifferent is always desired. Not meant to offend, but I write about many things in many a guise. Of life, death, lost, found, saved, backsliders, new comers, repenting souls, doubting hearts, heathens, Christians, fire, water, Satan's daughter, wallowing in sin, saved, made sound walking in Light, graceful righteous. Suffering, ecstatic, bored, excited, sad, delighted, Sick, well, lame, able, living, dying, etc. etc. etc. Writing about anything, everything and everyone as the spirit leads. All meant to reveal, waken, revive, encourage, shame, help. Gladden, pick up, exalt, portrait, liberate. Again over 99% of my work is not about me. Although at times I write as though I were or am. Speaking e.g. in the first person. This is quite common even in the bible itself. Prophets speak of themselves, then God speaks, again the prophet, then God......Quite often it's difficult to distinguish whom it is that at any given time is speaking or narrating.
